In the store, Part 3: More furniture

We added a few more pieces to the floor that I think will be popular. My SIL found a  couple more credenzas and another great Danish chair with cane trim. He is going out of state again today to pick up a pair of Ib Kofod-Larsen chairs and another C. Jeré wall sculpture. We have picked up a few chairs from the upholsterer and still have a few more there which are supposed to be ready soon, so we'll have a lot to show you in the next few days.

Also, a trio of tables made of teak and travertine marble have returned home and are for sale again. A couple bought them, and when my SIL was loading them, one of the large pieces of marble slid off and shattered, so he refunded their money. After searching for replacement marble all over Dallas and finding nothing, he was finally able to locate a perfectly matching piece in Fort Worth. Coincidentally, the piece that broke had been repaired at some time in the past, leaving a line down the center of the table. Now the set is in absolutely beautiful condition. So beautiful, in fact, that I'm tempted to bring them home. Nothing says swanky like teak and travertine!

  1. I love it all. I just saw a round coffee table very similar to those end tables at Salvation Army for $60. It killed me to pass it up but we have absolutely no place to put it.

  2. @Midcenturymadam: I've reached that point too. My SIL gets in things all the time that I love, but I honestly don't have anywhere to put them. I just listed a credenza and a gossip bench on Craigslist because my house is so full that I have to be willing to give up something if I buy a new piece.

  3. Of course, that doesn't keep me from looking at that Danish chair and thinking about what kind of fabric I could recover it with. :)
